"Gentlemen — The Supreme Court of Illinois on 
September 15, 1952, allowed our petition for 
rehearing of the judgment entered on May 22, 
1952, which had reversed the judgment of the Cir- 
cuit Court dismissing plaintiff's suit for an injunc- 
tion to restrain the enforcement of the poultry or- 
dinance enacted December 1, 1950 (chap. 95, sees. 
95-29.1 et seq.).

had held the ordinance invalid by reason of its 
failure to include regulations for wholesale poultry 
slaughter. In our petition for rehearing, we as- 
serted the distinction between sale and slaughter 
of live poultry at retail in business districts which 
are located near residences and apartment houses

anticipation warrants, a like principal amount of 
the original warrants that were issued against the 
same tax that is anticipated by the new war- 
rants, together with so much of the interest ac- 
crued thereon as the proceeds of the sale of the

pation warrants shall be paid to the City Treas- 
urer to restore the funds of the City of Chicago in- 
vested in the original tax anticipation warrants.

not presented for payment after they are called 
for redemption.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCII^-CHICAGO 



October 8, 1952 



Augu.st 7, 1952 
The Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
City of Chicago 

City Council of the City of Chicago 
City Hall 

In re: Superhighway Adjacent to Slum and 
Blighted Area Redevelopment Project 
No. 3. 

Gentlemen — On June 11, 1952 the City Council 
of the City of Chicago passed the following resolu- 
tion: 

"Resolved, That it is the sense of the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago that the Chicago Land 
Clearance Commission be requested to make a 
study as to the possibility of increasing the area 
of Redevelopment Project No. 3 so as to include 
the right-of-way of the proposed South Route of 
the Comprehensive Superhighway System be- 
tween W. Polk Street and W. Roosevelt Road, 
with a view to availing ourselves of Federal 
funds under Title One of the Housing Act of 
1949 ; and that the Chicago Land Clearance Com- 
mission be requested to submit to the City Coun- 
cil, within 60 days, a report on this question." 
This letter is in answer to this request. 
Preliminary discussions with representatives of 
the Division of Slum Clearance and Urban Rede- 
velopment of the Housing and Home Finance Agen- 
cy, indicate that provided no other federal funds 
are involved in any portion of the South Express- 
way, it may be possible to avail ourselves of federal 
funds under Title I of the Housing Act of 1949 for 
highway purposes. A definite decision as to whether 
this can be done and to what extent must neces- 
sarily await the submission of all necessary materi- 
als to the Division of Slum Clearance and Urban 
Redevelopment for formal review by that agency. 
The ultimate decision will depend on the specific 
facts with respect to this particular case. Thus, 
federal representatives indicate that: 

1. The use of federal funds under Title I of the 
Housing Act of 1949 for highway purposes is 
not impossible. 

2. A definite decision as to whether it would be 
possible, and to what extent, in this particu- 
lar case must await a formal review. 

3. Should it be possible to use funds for the high- 
way, all the administrative requirements im- 
posed by the Division of Slum Clearance and 
Urban Redevelopment in connection with the 
Title I Program will come into effect. 

The submission of an application to the Division 
of Slum Clearance and Urban Redevelopment for 
formal review is a time-consuming task which the 
Commission has not wanted to undertake until it 
has been decided that the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission is to acquire the highway route. 

However, it is possible to present at this time 
some salient facts which are pertinent to a decision 
on this matter. These facts are : 

1. The area of Slum and Blighted Area Rede- 
velopment Project No. 3 as now delineated con- 
sists of some 1,473,687 square feet. 

2. The area of the South Expressway route under 
consideration is about 684,958 square feet. 

3. The preliminary cost of the real property to 
be acquired by the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission in Slum and Blighted Area Re- 
development Project No. 3 is now estimated at 
some $3,982,585. 

4. The preliminary cost of the real property for 
Superhighway purposes is estimated to be 

some $2,787,309. 



5. The average cost of real property in Slum and 
Blighted Area Redevelopment Project No. 3 
thus is $2.70 a square foot while the average 
cost of property in the highway area is $4.08 
a square foot. If the highway were included 
in this project area, the average cost of real 
property per square foot would be $3.14 in- 
stead of $2.70. It is clear that the relative cost 
of the highway area is greater than the cost 
of the project area as now delineated and 
while the area to be acquired for the highway 
is less than one-half of the area of Slum and 
Blighted Area Redevelopment Project No. 3, 
the cost of the highway is equal to almost 
three-fourths that of the currently delineated 
area of Slum and Blighted Area Redevelop- 
ment Project No. 3. 

6. Under these conditions, while the Department 
of Subways and Superhighways might save 
some of its funds, provided the Division of 
Slum Clearance and Urban Redevelopment in 
its formal review agreed to permit the inclu- 
sion of the highway right-of-way under Title 
I, the proportion of local funds taken from the 
monies available for slum clearance by private 
enterprise would be increased. The amounts 
by which these funds for private redevelop- 

. ment will be decreased and the amounts saved 
by the Department of Subways and Superhigh- 
ways, will be entirely dependent upon the re- 
use value for Superhighway purposes which is 
approved by the Division of Slum Clearance 
and Urban Redevelopment. Without an ap- 
praisal of re-use value for this highway, and 
without specific approval of this re-use value 
by the Division of Slum Clearance and Urban 
Redevelopment, it is not possible to obtain a 
good estimate of the amounts saved and lost. 

It is possible, however, to make several as- 
sumptions to illustrate what might be involved. 

Under current conditions. Slum and Blighted 
Area Redevelopment Project No. 3 real property 
cost, which is the major cost item, is estimated to 
be $3,982,585. Assuming a re-use value to private 
developers of some $2,801,172, the current write- 
down could be $1,181,413. The federal share 
might, under these conditions, be about $787,608 
and the funds from the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission would be about $393,805. 

If the highway right-of-way were included, the 
$3,982,585 real property cost would be almost 
double or $6,769,894. Assuming, hypothetically, 
that the Division of Slum Clearance and Urban 
Redevelopment would permit a re-use value to 
the Department of Subways and Superhighways 
of one-third of acquisition cost, or $929,103, the 
monies received by the Chicago Land Clearance 
Commission for the land would equal $2,801,172 
from the re-sale to private enterprise and $929,- 
103 from the Department of Subways and Super- 
highways, or a total re-use value of $3,730,275. 
The total write-down would then equal $6,769,894 
minus $3,730,275, or $3,039,619. The federal share 
would then equal $2,026,413 instead of $787,608 
and the funds coming from the Chicago Land 
Clearance Commission would be $1,013,206 rather 
than only $393,805. The highway inclusion would 
thus reduce the amount of local funds available 
for slum clearance by private enterprise by some 
$620,000. This amount, by which limited Chi- 
cago Land Clearance Commission funds would be 
depleted, would otherwise be available for clear- 
ing Chicago's slum and blighted areas for re- 
development by private enterprise. If the high- 
way is included in this project, the cost to the

Chicago Land Clearance Commission would be 
almost three times greater than originally con- 
templated. 

Further, not only is there a limit to local funds 
for slum clearance by private enterprise which 
funds would be reduced by some $620,000, but 
there is a limit to federal grant funds which may 
be made available to Chicago for such purposes 
and federal grant funds needed to help the Com- 
mission in its job of slum clearance through pri- 
vate capital would be decreased by $1,238,805. 
In summary, to the extent that federal grant 
monies and local slum clearance funds are used 
for this highway, those available for slum clear- 
ance are exhausted. 

It is clear from this discussion that a major 
portion of the investment in this project if the 
highway right-of-way were included would not be 
for slum clearance by private enterprise. Rather, 
the Chicago Land Clearance Commission would 
be engaged in duplication of activities for which 
the Department of Subways and Superhighways 
was created and for which federal funds for high- 
way construction are now made available to that 
department. Further, if federal funds under Title 
I were used, it might not be possible to use other 



federal funds, for this South Route of the Ex- 
pressway, according to preliminary discussions 
with representatives of the Division of Slum 
Clearance and Urban Redevelopment. 

The foregoing information, we hope, will be of 
assistance to the Council of the City of Chicago in 
evaluating the following pertinent propositions: 

1. Should the monies which were appropriated 
primarily for eliminating Chicago's slum and 
blighted areas by private enterprise be con- 
sumed for public highway purposes? 

2. Should the functions of the Department of 
Subways and Superhighways be duplicated by 
the Chicago Land Clearance Commission? 

We are pleased to advise that the Commission 
stands ready to prepare and submit its formal ap- 
plication to the Division of Slum Clearance and Ur- 
ban Redevelopment at such time as these problems 
have been resolved and it has been decided that the 
Commission is to acquire the relevant portion of 
the Superhighway. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Ira J. Bach, 
Executive Director.

Oil Progress Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, we live in an age in which civilization 
has been transformed through the discovery of 
petroleum in commercial quantities; and 

Whereas, we dwell in a land which is the very 
symbol of the progress, comfort and security which 
petroleum makes possible; and 

Whereas, the week of October 12th to 18th has 
been designated Oil Progress Week, when the oil 
men of this country will cooperate to inform the 
public of the contributions of their industry both 
to our high standard of living and to the preserva- 
tion of our traditional freedoms; and 

Whereas, the thousands of Chicago citizens who 
are engaged in producing, transporting, refining 
and marketing petroleum products desire to partic- 
ipate in the observance of Oil Progress Week by 
arranging exhibits and joining in various other 
activities for the purpose of showing how, through 
initiative, skill and daring, America's competing 
oil companies serve and will continue to serve the 
people of this nation and of this state or com- 
munity ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the period 
of October 12-18, 1952 as Oil Progress Week in 
Chicago, and in so doing call the attention of all 
citizens to the many contributions in products and 
services rendered by the American petroleum in- 
dustry, and with particular emphasis upon our 
friends, neighbors and good citizens who are en- 
gaged in this vast and vital enterprise. 

Dated this 10th day of October, A.D. 1952. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 



Credit Union Day in Chicago. 

Whereas, the Credit Union Movement is now in 
its second century of service; and 

Whereas, credit unions provide a means whereby 
people may pool their savings, and thus mutually 
assist each other in filling their requirements for 
useful credit at low cost; and 

Whereas, credit unions combat usury, encourage 
thrift and stimulate regular service; and 

Whereas, the third Thursday of each October is 
internationally observed as Credit Union Day in 
recognition of the outstanding service rendered by 
these organizations; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do proclaim Thursday, Oc- 
tober 16, 1952 as Credit Union Day in Chicago, and 
in so doing urge our people to give fitting recogni- 
tion at this time to the many benefits brought to 



them by the five hundred credit unions which oper- 
ate within our city. 
Dated this 14th day of October, A.D. 1952. 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 

Blue Ballot Week. 

Whereas, the people of Illinois by unprecedented 
vote in 1950 adopted the Gateway Amendment, 
thereby making possible needed modernization of 
our State Constitution; and 

Whereas, the General Assembly, by virtually un- 
animous vote of both Houses, has submitted for the 
consideration of the people of Illinois four propo- 
sals to amend three articles of the State Constitu- 
tion, namely, the articles pertaining to revenue, 
county officers and banking; and 

Whereas, said proposed amendments to the State 
Constitution have been endorsed by both major 
political parties and by many leading business, 
labor, agricultural, professional and civic groups, 
as important changes necessary in the continuing 
Gateway effort to modernize our State Constitution 
and to improve the structure of local and state 
government in Illinois; and 

Whereas, it is in the interest of the people of 
The City of Chicago, Illinois that, in the midst of 
the present political campaigns involving candidates 
for office, time should be set aside for thoughtful 
and careful consideration of these amendments 
to the State Constitution which, if passed, will be 
the first amendments working any substantial 
change in our basic law since the year 1904. 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the week 
commencing October 19, 1952, as "Blue Ballot 
Week" in Chicago and urge the voters of our city 
to give careful consideration to these important 
constitutional amendments which will be submitted 
to them on a special Blue Ballot at the general 
election on November 4, 1952. 

Dated this 20th day of October, A.D. 1952. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 

National Bible Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, our nation in these perilous times has 
need of spiritual comfort in its defense against the 
continual onslaught of atheistic ideologies and gov- 
ernments; and 

Whereas, the Holy Bible, recognized as one of 
the basic texts upon which our democracy was 
founded, and provides a clear and shining light to 
direct us in these dark and trying days; and 

Whereas, it is our desire to extend our full co- 
operation to the Laymen's National Committee in 
its work to remind our people of the Book of Books 
and its basic meaning in the American way of life ;

showing his estimates of the appropriable resources 
available for the Corporate, Water, Vehicle Tax 
and Bond Redemption and Interest Funds, and his 
estimate for appropriations to departments. 

"Departmental requests for the year 1953 for 
Corporate Purposes are $125,746,272.00, which is 
$24,481,598.00 in excess of estimated appropriable 
resources.

tional amount.

pation warrants for use for the particular purposes

sions in Sections 15-6 and 15-7 of the Revised

ticipation warrants, a like principal amount of the 
original warrants that were issued against the same 
tax that is anticipated by the new warrants, together

warrants will permit, shall be paid and cancelled. 

The proceeds of the sale of the new tax anticipa- 
tion warrants shall be paid to the City Treasurer 
to restore the funds of the City of Chicago invested 
in the original tax anticipation warrants. Before 
cancellation of the principal amount of any original 
warrant, the City Treasurer shall separately en-

ment in the following order: (1) the principal 
amount so paid and (2) the amount of accrued 
interest paid. The City Treasurer shall also en- 
dorse upon the original tax anticipation warrants 
the amount of interest accrued thereon and unpaid, 
and the same shall not be paid until all principal 
and interest upon the new warrants shall be fully 
paid or until money has been set aside for payment 
thereof, if the new warrants are not presented for 
payment after they are called for redemption.

"Pursuant to your request of August 18, for in- 
formation as to the status of concessions and the 
income derived therefrom, please be advised that 
this office no longer is responsible for the handling 
of such concessions. The legislature in 1949 
amended Chapter 24, Section 22A-4 to read as 
follows : 

'. . . nor shall this Article be applicable to the 
granting or issuance pursuant to powers conferred 
by laws, ordinances or resolutions, of franchises, 
licenses, permits or other authorizations by the 
corporate authorities of the municipality, or by de- 
partments, offices, institutions, boards, commis- 
sions, agencies or other instrumentalities thereof, 
nor to contracts or transactions, other than the 
sale or lease of personal property, pursuant to 
which the municipality is the recipient of money.' 

"The City Law Department in an opinion ad- 
vised that the Purchasing Agent is not responsible 
for contracting for concessions or leases. Conces- 
sions and leases are handled by the various depart- 
ments involved ; for example real estate concessions 
are handled by the Comptroller, food concessions 
by the Department of Public Works, etc. 

"I hope the above answers your inquiry."
